Confirmed. The only disc in the world that has both
the UK and US dubs on it is the Japanese release entitled the "North American Edition
For the Japanese "N.A. Edition", note that the only lossless audio track is the US dub (in DTS-HD MA). The UK dub and the original Japanese audio tracks are both present with lossy DTS encoding. Also, the only subtitles on the disc are in Japanese, so you can't listen to the Japanese audio and read the subs in English.
It's really a niche release, which I can't see much of a market for outside Japan. I guess a really hard-core dub watcher who doesn't have a multi-region player would enjoy it, but I don't see the attraction. Not only is it 50% more expensive than the already-expensive "standard" Japanese release (which had English subs but no English dub of any kind) but it lacks any and all bonus features. Given current exchange rates, it would almost
be more economical to buy both a modified BD player and the normal UK release of Arrietty!
